My basement has had groundwater flowing in through the floor for the past month. One room is full of water, another has huge puddles. I have a sump pump already, so the water gets pumped out when it flows across the floor to it. I've been told I need drainage tiles put in.

It sounds like basement waterproofing services can be high pressure and overpriced. Does anyone know of people in the Holland/Grand Rapids area who do this well and for a decent price?

Thanks for your help.

The "inside the house" type of drainage system worked for us. You just ahve to make sure your sump pump has a hose to carry it far away from the foundation or it will just recycle. We used "B Dry systems". About $3,000 - $5,000 depending on basement size. It's been dry as a bone since.
